OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Science Museum Oklahoma is getting a $12 million grant from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation and plans to open a new exhibit area for young children.
Museum officials said Tuesday that with the grant they have raised $15 million for the project and will work to raise another $10 million from the community.
The Oklahoman reports (http://is.gd/sIyPJb ) the new 21,000-square-foot exhibit space will be devoted to children between 3 and 6 years old and will be like a museum within a museum.
The museum also plans a new main entrance and lobby along with improved parking and updated landscaping.
